Wouldn’t you know it, all I needed for a good, hard run was a group. DUH.
Heart and Sole Sports has a Tuesday night 5:30 pm fun run that I’ve never gone to. It was perfect for my schedule, so I swung by. I was thrilled when three girls showed up that were in a trail running group with me before, and similar to my speed. Perfect!
I ran most of the way chatting Drue’s ear off about life and love and marriage and divorce, and we ran a lovely 4.8 miles that included a flat section, some uphills, some fast downhills, and then some flats back to the store.
Until I have the computer set up that’s moving with me, I won’t have any Garmin uploads, but here are the splits:
Mile 1: 9:49
Mile 2: 9:38
Mile 3: 10:33
Mile 4: 10:33
Last .8: 10:35 pace
The first two miles are the same as my crappy feeling run last week, and then I kept going! And I felt GREAT. And I felt great after. And I’ve been smiling all night.
I love how a good run makes me feel. Like this:
